A foot trail along the East Branch of the Deerfield leads up to Searsburg Reservoir. The trail starts from Forest Road 71, which runs along the Deerfield River. The trailhead is about a quarter mile upstream from the confluence of the Deerfield and the East Branch. It first crosses over the Deerfield itself, via a footbridge. Another footbridge, over the East Branch, is a few hundred yards east along the trail.
This view is from the first footbridge, looking upstream at the Deerfield.
